+ Fav Poet


in the quiet of the night the owls hoot

violence erupts and guns do shoot

colors become enemy lines that many will cross

another random drive by another tragic loss

preying on innocent lives in the jungle

waking up everyday is a struggle

hiding behing dumpsters from the cops

the cycle always continues and never stops

death is in the air mixed with violence and rape

blocks upon blocks covered with yellow tape

you say that the drug game is run by the blacks

i know for a fact that the white man introduced crack

statistics proove that a weak man will drop a dime

while a woman will stand up and do the time

too be real you must stand up for your rights

and be willing to go out with a fight

despite the outcome if we believe in our facts

and understand the truths 

no greater power can one hold over the other

respect few fear none

    Brandy, Walk away. Leave the hate and pain on the sidewalks where you found it. We love you here, and I don;t care what color you are. Your stuff makes me feel guilty for retiring and leaving so much unchanged behind me. Great write. Love, Will
